I’ve been busy over the past few days, but have found some time to do shape the terrain around Port Rowan and start applying ground cover and static grass.
(Note that I’ve removed the trees in the orchard so I wouldn’t get foam board dust stuck to them while working on the meadow.)
I prepped the foam board surface with rasps and rifflers. I then added lumps of Sculptamold in select spots to provide a bit of a roll to the meadow. I then painted the surface in patches, sprinkling the wet paint with ground up tea leaves and commercial scenery material from Scenic Express and Woodland Scenics. Over this, I flooded dilute Weldbond and while it was still wet I added Noch static grass.
I must still add shrubs and other greenery, plus a few trees – and, of course, details.
I can do a little more – notably, along the back of the scene – but the area near the station and feed mill will have to wait until I build the structures. Still, a good start on scenery in Port Rowan, I think!
